Inter Milan vs Bologna
Italian Serie A
Date: Sunday, 3 February 2019
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (Milano).
Inter will be looking to return to the winning ways on Sunday evening when they play host to relegation strugglers Bologna at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Nerazzurri claimed only one point from last two league outings against Sassuolo and Torino. They failed to find the back of the net at all along (a 0-0 draw and a 1-0 defeat).
Luckily for Luciano Spalletti and his men, their main rivals in the battle for the top-four finish also slipped up last weekend meaning Inter are still five points clear off arch-rivals Milan in fourth place.
Bologna had an imperative to claim spoils seven days ago against fellow strugglers Frosinone. Not only had they failed to snatch a victory, but suffered a real disaster losing 0-4 at their Renato Dall’Ara. It was an immediate sign for the board to make a managerial change as Serbian manager Sinisa Mihajlovic returned to Italian football taking over Filippo Inzaghi on the bench.
Mihajlovic spent nice time in Inter Milan back in his playing days, but can he cause Nerazzurri troubles on his managerial debut with Bologna?
Inter Milan vs Bologna: Head-to-head
Bologna have never been a tricky opposition to Inter Milan.
Nerazzurri won four and drew one of past five meetings with Bologna.
I Rossoblu are winless in last ten encounter with Inter.
Inter Milan vs Bologna: Prediction
Bologna will be without the right-back Federico Mattiello who was sent off 14 minutes into last weekend’s tie with penultimate-placed Frosinone.
The visitors are winless in last eight matches in all competitions, but it will still be very interesting to see how they will react under the new manager here.
Since Inter have been struggling badly for goals in the last couple of affairs, it’s hard to find the value in backing the home win at 1.28 odds.
We will rather go with the Under 2.5 goals FT pick at 2.00, while you can also try backing the hosts to score fewer than three goals in the clash at 1.53.
